Find the Perfect Part for You

Before I begin any sheital cut, I discuss with my client where the sheital part should be. Most clients have a preference as to which side they are most comfortable wearing their part but don’t know what type of part or where to part their sheital in order to flatter their facial features. A flattering part for your face shape has the ability to slenderize your face, pop cheekbones, soften sharp angles and detract attention from large or uneven features.

If your face is round, a middle or deep side part will give the illusion of length and create symmetry around your face. Be careful not to cut too many layers around your face, add just enough to make the appearance of a slimmer face. A square face will work best with a soft side-swept part and bangs, which add softness to the bone structure. Too deep of a side part will do the opposite and accentuate the square angles in the face. Those with a heart-shaped face should try a deep side part to break up the chin line and soften the cheek bones, which tend to be pointy in heart-shaped faces. A side part will complement the diamond-shaped face’s strong cheek bones and pointy bone structure. Those with a diamond-shaped face need to stay away from short bangs and middle parts. Diamond-shaped faces also tend to have smaller foreheads and therefore hair that is too long will overshadow their face. A middle part, which helps to add an illusion of roundness, is best for oblong faces. Bangs also complement the oblong face as it helps to shorten the look of the long face. A haircut with layers and angles around the face bring out cheek bones and strong jaw lines. An oval face can of course wear any type of part or style.

Other factors to consider before deciding where to part your hair:

*Thinning hair: If your hair is thinning, chances are it is thinning more in the area that you part your hair. Therefore, change your part to the other side so that your hair appears thicker and with more volume.

When parting a sheital be sure to keep in mind:
